Bill Nye, famous "Science Guy" joined a list of intellectual elites this past week the likes of Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins -- extreme left proponents of the destruction of faith, amongst other views. Nye had a popular children's science show on Disney's Buena Vista Television from September 1993 to June 1998 on PBS. His new video is not quite as friendly. It is simply titled, "Creationism Is Not Appropriate for Children." Further, Nye expresses to parents at the opening of the video that, "I say to the grownups, 'If you want to deny evolution and live in your own world that's completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that's fine. But don't make your kids do it,'"
The video, Bill Nye's "Creationism Is Not Appropriate for Children," was posted on Thursday August 23rd by the online forum Big Think to YouTube and had gotten more than 1.3 million views as of Monday.
Nye says that public doubt in the scientific concept of evolution -- which holds that human beings origins of all life come from random nothingness, then later mutations -- would hinder scientific progress. Nye firmly states that if people do not grow-up and embrace evolution, dismissing the "trite ideas of God" (as Richard Dawkins and Bill Maher put it), that there will be no engineers, no grasp of science, no grasp of reality, or knowledgeable voters, to carry the world into the future.
Some Americans easily find offense in these suggestions that the last 200 years of technological development by men and women of faith across the nation were achieved with those very "trite ideas" which he firmly states must be bound from children.
"When you have a portion of the population that doesn't believe in (evolution) it holds everybody back, really," he said.
These statements come as a disappointment to many who enjoyed the shows.
According to a Gallup poll that surveyed 1,012 adults in May, 46 percent of Americans can be described as creationists for believing that God created humans in their present form at some point within the last 10,000 years.
Nye said, children should be taught evolution in order to understand science. Absent a grasp of evolution, he said, "You're just not going to get the right answers." And he called evolution the "fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology." Teaching children this science is essential for the country's future, he added, saying, "We need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future."
Evolution holds a firm grasp in today's educational community, and respective societies of mind who favor "theoretical sciences" over "practical application." Common sciences evolution violates include biology, thermo-dynamics, physics, mathematics, etc, etc, etc... In essence, it violates many, many observable laws in favor of "anything can happen given enough time." Leading some to say, evolutionists can be more religious than the most hard-core of concerning religious fanatics -- a battle not for science, but against its most fundamental and basic precepts.
I believe it was George Walt himself who stated,"There are only two possibilities as to how life arose. One is spontaneous generation arising to evolution; the other is a supernatural creative act of God. There is no third possibility. Spontaneous generation, that life arose from non-living matter was scientifically disproved 120 years ago by Louis Pasteur and others. That leaves us with the only possible conclusion that life arose as a supernatural creative act of God. I will not accept that philosophically because I do not want to believe in God. Therefore, I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible; spontaneous generation arising to evolution." ("Innovation and Biology," Scientific American, Vol. 199, Sept. 1958, p. 100).
Since that date -- science has made the prospect of evolution, not brighter; but contrarily, grimmer and grimmer.
None-the-less, Bill Nye stated his piece. And, in response, a video titled "Bill Nye Punked after Evolution / Creation Claims" was uploaded by the God in a Nutshell project on Tuesday. -- Nutshell Newz
